Either Urobuchi is trying to pull another bait and switch with us like he did with Madoka or he's been kidnapped and forced to work against his will. Gargantia's summary almost made it sound like a slice of life show.

I can't see him expecting to fool anyone anymore, though.... I mean everyone who watches any anime at all knows what the Urobutcher does.


The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

I told her there was a secret method to doing it - and there is - but my once nimble and agile fingers were unable to perform because I was under the influence.

I would laugh, not hate. I'm a male. :(

Dug out my copy of Tank Police last night. I'd forgotten how funny it was.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Making my way through Code Geass.

 

I love it.

I'm currently watching Lucky Star right now. It's not as serious as a lot of the other animes that I've watched so far, but I'm finding it really funny and I'm loving all of the references to other animes.

Just wait till you get to the second half, you'll laugh your head off.

What spring 2013 animes are you guys planning to watch? There aren't that many interesting titles for me asides from Oreimo season 2 and Railgun season 2.

 

People have been saying Date a Live and Hataraku Maou-sama are pretty good for their first episodes, though.

 

And also, JC staff's new work, Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko has a pretty good premise.

^I have hopes for Railgun Season 2, but am terrified it'll be as filled with useless fanservice and filler as the first series. If it is then I'll be dropping the series for sure, because this is probably the most engaging section of Railgun's plot so far.

 

Also the Urobutcher's new anime, but I've already spammed this thread with enough of that.

 

...I just realized episode 1 had been fansubbed and is online now. Bye.

I finished the series a few days ago - It was really funny; I definitely enjoyed it.

So, that Suisei no Gargantia episode....

[hide=Spoilers]

Stuff I found interesting:

 

-Even though the main character escaped, mankind just lost a pivotal battle against whatever those things they were fighting were. I'm sure that isn't good for mankind.

-The information spewed out in the opening scene was so heavily propagandized and hateful (calling the aliens lower beings and such) that I feel like the human race may not have been the good guys there.

-The ending credits were completely half-assed, just like the ending credits of the first few episodes of Madoka Magica. This reinforces guesses that this series will have a major genre shift.

-The mentions of mankind's main home, and how the main character would be granted the privilege of living there for a few weeks in exchange for his >100000 hours of service just add to my thoughts that mankind has turned into a dystopian society.

-Why would Earth have been forgotten? What drove much of mankind away from it?[/hide]

 

Edit:

Just watched Shingeki No Kyojin episode 1.... Intense as heck.

So. Suisei no Gargantia 2.

 

I'm concerned for the Mech; low power doesn't bode well. I foresee problems 'charging' from the sea galaxies, if that even ends up being possible. If it isn't he'll probably make his exit after a second round of the Limiter Override thing, fighting pirates or space-baddies descending on Earth. Manly tears will be had. Might even be that Red goes with him, sinks or something, but it would hurt the impact if he wasn't left behind to mourn.

 

On the note of the sea galaxies, the lightning seemed to bring up some bad memories with Red. Unsurprisingly. Foreshadowing? Maybe they're related to the Hideous?

 

I'm going to go ahead and assume the series ends up having the humans return to Earth, and the protagonist fighting them. Can't be sure with Urobochi subverting expectations, but that sort of thing almost always results from scenarios like this. If it turns out that way I don't doubt it will end in tragedy and widespread shipsplosion; either all the natives will die, or all the invading spacers. Or both, if there's some surprise twist that makes the Hideous sympathetic.

 

EDIT: Ah, forgot the most obvious theories; next episode starts with Red at gunpoint and/or under threat of exile, the series is setting us up for a mid-game boss in the form of the named pirate leader trying to capture Red and his Mech, and the inevitable relationship between Red and that girl whose name I don't remember yet will be strained and put off thanks to his nonchalant murder of at least a few dozen people.

[hide=spoilers]

The lightning strongly reminded me of the blasts shot by the Hideous, personally. Maybe Earth was their birthplace/houses a related species? However I'm also pretty interesting in that shooting star. That was a blatant Chekhov's Gun moment- writers tend not to remember shooting stars except for wishes and alien invasions.

 

Also I feel like more pirates attacking Red would just result in more dead pirates. Even if he's low on power he's demonstrated that he can obliterate them with barely any effort. It may even scare off the pirates. Personally I'm expecting half an episode of distrust followed by a few "peaceful" episodes before shit starts to hit the fan.

No, but I am watching a playthrough of Saya no Uta.

 

And may I say; holy [bleep], that game is incredibly disturbing.

 

Not to mention, I thought since I was watching on youtube, the nastiness would have to be censored.

 

NNNNNNNOPE

Is it the kind of disturbing that you'd find in surreal horror, or the kind that makes you wonder if you're a horrible person?

I'm actually slowly playing through Saya no Uta (slowly because I'm not often in the mood to subject myself to that and I don't want anyone screenlooking when I play it).

 

It's both, Alg. Just... both.

 

 

And censoring the nastiness in Saya no Uta would require half the scenes to just be completely blacked out.

Goo world is one thing, but the youtube series I was watching of it had the guy run out of video time JUST before the first... indecent... scene. So I start watching the second episode and all of a sudden BAM canoodling.

 

I kinda feel like I should be reporting that video.

^If someone is watching Saya no Uta LP's they should expect it. Because trust me it gets WAY worse.

I like shingeki no kyojin, reminds me gantz. Suisei no gargantia is oookay, but really slice of life-y so far. Is it even a shounen?

I'm expecting everything to go to hell somehow, just because the Urobutcher was part of the project and I don't ever recall him being involved in a happy piece. He might surprise us, though.

 

I've almost finished Code Geass R2, and boy are these last few episodes full of twists.

^Funfact: If you mixed your Nichijou clips appropriately you could easily fool a person into believing it was the most hardcore anime in all existence.

 

 

...And now I'm sad again because I just realized we'll never get more Nichijou....

Episode 5 of To Aru kagaku no Railgun S was so gorey and awesome... J.C Staff has done an amazing job.

Three months banishment to 9gag is something i would never wish upon anybody, not even my worst enemy.
